Montreal’s Beyries dropped the gripping cinematic video for the song Son, from her debut album Landing.
Directed by Philippe Grenier and shot on 35mm film, the video tells the dark secret of a country-dwelling family whose eldest son aims to avenge his little sister.
Freedom Baby is a boyfriend-girlfriend duo from Toronto. They met at a local show that both were performing back in 2013. They fell in love with each other’s record collections and then with each other.
In 2016 they decided to try making records together.
It was after a while of experimenting with electronic sounds and orchestral elements we came up with “Video Daydream”. They arranged the song with a Snakes & Ladder game board as their blueprint.
Each melody and instrument snakes and climbs from one place to another and each time you play something new is going to reveal itself.
They recorded “Video Daydream” in the spring of 2017 in Eric’s apartment along with a handful of other songs (which will be released early fall on our debut EP).
The combination of Brianna’s voice paired with Eric’s arrangements creates a dreamy and melancholic experience. We’d love if you could share our musical fusion.
I don’t cover that much hip-hop but I was like why not this one because Myke Bogan is on this label called Eyrst Records.
That labels happen to have The Last Artful, Dodgr who I caught at Capitol Hill Block Party in Seattle.
Myke’s upcoming album Pool Party drops on August 18th.
Have a listen to the song Gravy which features Michael Christmas
Portland’s hip hop and r&b scene has really come into the public eye within the last year, and Eyrst Records, an imprint that was started by producer Neill Von Tally and former Portland Blazers player Martell Webster, is in the middle of that scene. The label’s next release is LA-by-way-of-Portland MC, Myke Bogan. Past Bogan releases hit the number 14 spot on iTunes Top 100 and the Bandcamp hip-hop charts the day it dropped, and he’s been covered by AllHipHop.com, The Source, Flood, Okayplayer.com, Hip Hop Weekly and even XXL’s The Break. He has successfully set the precedent for his stylized visuals and dynamic delivery, coupled with a charismatic and fiery persona, earning him more than 800,000 video views and landing on the same stage as hip-hop legends Snoop Dogg, Bone Thugs-N-Harmony, and more. Myke played a bunch of festivals this summer and fall tour plans are firming up.
Grej is a Toronto solo project and performing pseudonym of Greg Harrison, a Canadian-based percussionist.
The video “Part 3” is from the album i/Variations and was choreographed/performed with dancer Mateo Galindo Torres with artist Carlos Delgado. It explores the process of expressing and absorbing rebellious actions. The work is built from traditional Colombian folk songs, which cater to the perpetual rhythmic layers. This eventually gets swallowed by waves of synth and bowed metal objects – the thematic motif of the album.
The album is a four part project where each musical work navigates through a physical and emotive journey that features manipulated cymbals and a Roland Juno synthesizer.
Holy Hum, the Vancouver-based artist Andrew Lee, has premiered a new single called “White Buzz”
“White Buzz” was the first song Lee wrote for his debut album, shortly after the passing of his father. Lee had spent a month by his father’s side in the hospital blinded by the intense white light of fluorescents and the constant buzz of life support machines. The first two stanzas deal with loss: letting go and giving it away. The final two stanzas are about sacrifice. Lee’s father was an opera singer, and the ending of “White Buzz” is an improvised attempt by Lee to sing like his father.
“White Buzz” was recorded at Phil Elverum’s studio “The Unknown” in Anacortes, Washington, entirely live off the floor, save for a few overdubs and vocals. The longest track on Holy Hum’s debut record, Lee laid down the improvised frenetic guitar solo first and wrote the rest of the song based around it. A fan of Mount Eerie, Lee asked Anacortes resident, Allyson Foster, who provided vocals on Wind’s Poem, Clear Moon, and Ocean Roar, to provide backing vocals on the track. She obliged.
In regards to “White Buzz”, Lee stated, “Whenever I think back at that time, my mind generates that buzz and my eyes adjust to the light.” Details on Holy Hum’s debut record will arrive in the coming weeks.
